Abstract

Encephalocele is the most common cause of occipital midline extracranial mass associated with hydrocephalus. A case is presented where an occipital extracranial mass associated with hydrocephalus which was detected on second‐trimester ultrasound examination turned out to be a haemangioma, a relatively benign lesion. We suggest that haemangioma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of extracranial masses detected prenatally.
